Excerpts from Desmond Elliott’s recent chat with Ademola Olonilua
Interviewer: How often do you find time to take your family out and probably cook for your wife?
Hon Elliott: I don’t cook for my wife, I am sorry. I wish I could. I cannot cook and I also do not have the time. I try my best.
Interviewer: Is it that you cannot cook for your wife?
Elliott: No, it is not that I cannot cook for my wife but I cannot cook. My wife is a Calabar woman and she is very skillful in that area. So what I do is that once in a while, I go to the kitchen and boil water. I try my best but for the kids, they need my attention, so I try very hard to give it to them. It is always good to have conversation with your children.
Victoria Elliott is the mother of Desmond Elliott’s four children. The Lagos-based couple will celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary in December.
